Probably your object landed somewhere way off the page.
How did you 'import' the SVG?

I did a quick test; your SVG is fine (except the Arial 
thingie) and shows nicely in Konqueror previews and in Inkscape.
Make an image frame -> Get image -> Adjust image to frame is 
the way I 'imported' the SVG, had to choose 'All files' in 
the filetype dropdown (may vary between OS's)
Had no warnings when saving or printing as PDF.
